Dear Parents/Carers,

We are delighted to announce that thanks to Children in Need we are able to offer four completely FREE residentials over the next 12 months to locations such as Peat Rigg Activity Centre and Centre Parcs!  

Please read the information below in full to determine which trip(s) are suitable for your child and then express your interest via the link below.

Whilst we would love to be able to offer a space to all our children and young people, spaces are limited and so we ask that you only express interest in one trip and return your expression of interest to us no later than Monday 31st May

All of the trips below are for the children only, therefore parents and siblings are not permitted to attend.

Expressing interest for one of these brilliant trips does not mean that you have a confirmed space on the trip, we will contact you if and when a space is allocated to your child.

Kind Regards

Jennifer Hewitt
Head of Children and Family Services
